Cute story about Barnacle who is bored. Every day is the same (he describes them). Then along comes a polka-dotted fish. Barnacle imagines all the fun thing that fish gets to do with all the other fish in the ocean. Until another, bigger fish swims along looking hungry. We do actually see what happens to the other fish (the barnacle covers his eyes), but on the back inside cover the is an illustration of the bigger fish, with the polka dotted guy in his stomach. Suddenly the barnacle is not bored! Cute!
Great story for children old enough to have experienced boredom, and understand the concept of not taking something for granted/seeing that one experience might not be the best but it is better than being eaten. The illustrations are large enough to share with a large crowd. A quick read that will delight everyone around.
Cute account of a day in the life of a bored barnacle is a great vocabulary builder that takes a turn into a food chain lesson just before the end.
A turn of events has a mopey Barnacle reconsider his infinite state of boredom. Fenske delivers a delightful read-aloud!
Great book for storytime. Nice large illustrations and funny text. Love the surprise on the end papers.
If the title doesn't tempt you, rest assured there's a life lesson (or 2) inside:)
